MBCC Bike For Prevention Virtual Event

By Charlotte Robinson, March 09, 2021

Massachusetts Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC) is hosting its first annual Bike for Prevention Bike-A-Thon virtually on a local & national scale from Monday April 19th to Sunday April 25th, 2021. Participants can ride one mile or more either outdoors on their favorite route or indoors on a stationary bike. For those interested who do not have a bike MBCC invites them to participate on foot & either walk or run any distance of their choosing. Cheryl Osimo, MBCC’s Executive Director stated, “We are proud & grateful to all of the MBCC friends who will help support this new event & raise funds toward MBCC’s focus on cancer prevention starting April 19th. Ultimately, these individuals along with all MBCC Bike for Prevention supporters are helping us to make the world a better place for our children, grandchildren & future generations.” MBCC is the only breast cancer non-profit working closely with a research & sister organization Silent Spring Institute to investigate preventable environmental causes of the disease. MBCC is currently working on crucial national health projects to address environmental causes of breast cancer including water testing & how PFAS enters groundwater from firefighting foams, wastewater & other pollution sources as well as their impacts on children’s health. This work is funded through annual fundraising events like its first virtual annual Bike for Prevention Bike-A-Thon. Registration for the Bike-A-Thon is $40 for individuals, $150 for families up to 5 members, $25 for students & registered participants will receive a free t-shirt. All proceeds from the Bike-A-Thon event will benefit breast cancer prevention. For Info & Registration…
